Man! A Human!
Oh yes, a weird being indeed!
A funny, crazy bundle of complexities he is!
A brain, he undoubtedly has but fails to understand him self,
And completely misunderstands others!
Stuffed with sharp accusations against others
How he abhors being blamed for anything!
Selflessly, he loves himself
But shuns and derides others,
Talks big but does little!
He struts and dances flaunting his feathers,
But alas, flees on perceiving danger
How stealthily he then crawls into his shell!
A cat and a mouse game
All through his life he plays,
Living in a fool’s paradise!
Blind arrogance governs his conscience,
So in his own world of dishonesty and corruption,
He lives and lolls
Lying to others as well as to his sweet self too!
He lives yearning for paradise
But paves his way to hell!
What a pathetic state of mind
Man lives proudly with!
He expects the sun to rise and shine upon him
But his vicious deeds cloud and darken it!
How very malicious, today life has become!
